Institutions of higher education continue to experience significant challenges. Unfortunately, there remains a deficit in formal preparation for those assuming leadership roles in both Student Affairs and Academic Affairs. Consequently, institutions continue to struggle in their efforts to navigate the turbulence that has become an everyday reality in higher education. The purpose of this workshop, then, is to provide a variety of proven strategies to help current and aspiring leaders have greater impact in these challenging times. The highly interactive workshop will be facilitated by an international group of scholar-practitioners. The workshop will begin with an exploration of the current challenges facing higher education, highlighting the need for changing how today's academic leaders are prepared. Presenters will identify core concepts and principles needed for developing effective and innovative leaders, and provide specific strategies and best practices for preparing academic leadership. Participants will leave the workshop with a set of tools and approaches that will help them (1) enhance their own leadership capacity, (2) more knowledgeably design and facilitate leadership development programming, and (3) better implement integrated approaches to organizational assessment, strategic planning, and change management.
